    Not sure what that video was supposed to show me tbh?
    As for why he is prison the judge found that Tommy Robinson committed a contempt of court in 3 respects;
    1. Breaching reporting restriction
    2. Live-streaming video outside the court
    3. Aggressively confronting and filming defendants
    However the judge also acknowledged that Tommy Robinson 'was not trying intentionally to interfere; and she notes the trial was not in fact disrupted'.
    From a lot of peoples perspective regarding the above points;
    #1 he reported only public domain information
    #2 stupid, but he wasn't on court property and as was admitted in court, staff had failed to put up reporting restriction notices in 4 different places. 
    #3 A new charge bought in at the 11th hour to ensure conviction imo - basically jailed for asking paedophiles 'how they were feeling about their verdict'.
    Furthermore the Judge also said that she wanted to make an example out of Tommy. (Which was also what Attorney General said -- he asked the court to punish citizen journalists.)
    IMHO Tommy Robinson put himself in a situation whereby he could end up in prison and has been jailed for who he is and what he stands for rather than what he actually did.  As I mentioned previously, other people were doing the same thing and faced no consequences. 
    What really winds me up however is the fact that the so called mainstream media abuse their position, outright lie and push a narrative to further their agenda, whilst putting 'why you can trust us' links at the bottom of every article.  For example, Tommy Robinson did not plead guilty to contempt of court yet every outlet reported that he had.  There was also the classic 'I don't care if I incite violence' headline that he literally never said.   If you only ever get your news and opinion from The Independent or The Guardian etc you are regularly being misled and spoon fed their agenda.

    Well there is no denying that despite 'legal training' he was stupid to put himself in a position whereby he could get himself arrested again.  Given who he is, his history and his following he has to appear to be whiter than white (no pun intended) otherwise its just another excuse to lock him up again - not sure thats sunk in yet lol.

    I've wrote a post on Tommy Robinson in the past.
    His views are based from his childhood experiences, Muslim gangs attacking members of his family and friends. A major cultural change to a town in a very short space of time. I sympathise for his upbringing.
    Do I agree with the way he expresses his points of view? No.

    Well I can't speak for everyone but I certainly know what my grandad would say about something like this, so please don't use peoples grandparents to try and make a point.
    I still await to hear from anyone how come the other reporters, who's reports he quoted from, have not been taken to court for breaching this 'reporting ban'? Maybe you can help me there?
    I also still await to hear what TR says is so abhorrent or why we should not even discuss the issues he raises? I don't need you to answer this though because I already know the answer. 
    Your last paragraph is just tripe I'm afraid and is just the ttypical sort of response given hence why these issues, which are important to many, cannot be discussed.

    "Leeds court, admitted that there had been an “administration process failure” that day and details of orders imposed on the case had not been posted outside courtrooms or logged on the computer system. Confirming that an internal inquiry had been launched to establish why orders had not been posted, she explained that all staff knew to tell anyone who asked that strict reporting restrictions had been imposed on the trial."
    Think we all know that if this has been anyone other than TR, based on the above statement, this would never have even made it to court.

    What law did he break?
    As far as I can see he was reporting on information that was already available in the public domain?
    Assuming that reporting outside court regarding sentencing, will the BBC reporters that reported from outside the court on his case be getting charged?

    The European parliament’s political groups have united to condemn the selection of the next European Commission president, branding the process an undemocratic stitch-up by national governments.
    EU leaders chose Ursula von der Leyen as their pick to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as the leader of the European Union’s executive branch despite the fact she was not on the ballot paper as a candidate and has no manifesto.
    The main reason why I personally voted to leave was to bring accountability closer to home.  As the saying goes, 'power corrupts, absolutely power corrupts absolutely' it will only get more insidious over time.

    Neither.
    The greatest danger to safeguards for workers, however, is the shift in power to corporate sector, and the EU is constitutionally set up to enable and promote that. 
    The only means we have had for gaining reforms hitherto have been through pressure on elected governments, who then legislate to limit the effects of corporate power. The EU sidesteps that entire process - you have no democratic access to the body which proposes legislation, but the banks and corporations do. 
    We're seeing the effects of late capitalism as it inevitably devolves towards oligarchy. The only way to stop it is through mass, international grassroots resistance imo.

    The contempt for democracy and justice is staggering. See also the appointment of Christine Lagarde, a convicted fraudster, as head of the European Central Bank. 
    She was found guilty by a court of law but not sentenced; normally the offence would carry a prison sentence. Most people expect that if they are caught with their hand in the till and convicted then there will be little chance of finding a job requiring a high level of trust or taking care of money. But Lagarde is offered the job of Head of the ECB.
    Corruption and unaccountability in plain sight. Democracy is dying before our eyes, and yet people still defend it because 'trade deals'.
